It will use wood fuels more efficiently and radiate this heat more efficiently into the room !
There is the problem of the fire place being on an outside wall and any use made of it must consider the fact that it will always act like a big heat sink !
Having said that Carter Bailey should see this, though I would rather see a more conventional build for a first Build, as It is much more forgiving and also easer to trouble shoot, And
we still get the high efficiencies, without all the Trauma/Drama - For the Craft ! Big Al
